Smart Duplication of Classes?



So regularly, I need to duplicate a series of classes (and their objects!), but I need to change a name in the string - in this example "OG" I want to name "V2" when duplicated:



Instead of Projector-OG-01-Beam 2, Mount 2, etc, I would like it to duplicate and do this:



My work around to do this is to use Batch Rename. Uncheck every class. Filter it, check the classes I want to edit, and change the string item "OG" to "V2":



And then remove the " 2":



In other programs this would be a string substitution on duplication and would be one step not many steps as the workaround above indicates. 


Now if only there was a way to do this as well as duplicate the objects into their new classes! Right now I do this class duplication nonsense and then one by one I copy each object, paste it, and put it into the new class. Woof! 🐶


Here's someone else asking for it, wondering if it's happened since then:


Here too:
